Cayman Islands School Inspection Reports

In the Cayman Islands there is a law which states that all government and private schools, as well as education facilities, must be inspected regularly by the Office of Education Standards. This is an independent division within the Cayman Islands Government. For more information on what OES does, and the reports they produce, please see link here.

For example inspections are conducted in a) all preschools and those caring for young children, b) all private and government primary and secondary government schools, including the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) and the Lighthouse School and c) all post-secondary education providers including those offering A-Levels, the IB and those offering the US High School Diploma and SATs.

Inspectors evaluate each school and give it a result of Excellent, Good, Satisfactory and Weak. Excellent means the school has exceptionally high quality of performance and practice. Good is the expected level for every school in the Cayman Islands regardless of whether it is a public or a private school. Satisfactory is the minimum level of quality required in the Cayman Islands. All schools should meet or exceed this level of performance and practice. Weak means that the quality of the teaching and other factors is not acceptable, and urgent measures need to be undertaken to improve the quality of the performance and practice in this school or facility. Only one school has ever been awarded an ‘Excellent’ result. The vast majority of schools which have been inspected to date have a ‘Satisfactory’ or a ‘Weak’ overall rating. Please note that inspection reports of many of Cayman’s private primary and high schools have not yet been undertaken. This page was last updated on February 12th 2019. We will add the new reports as they come in.
